What is CBG (cannabigerol)?

Cannabigerol (CBG) is a lesser-known cannabinoid that only recently started getting worldwide acknowledgment for its host of interesting and beneficial properties.

CBG is considered a minor cannabinoid because it is present in low levels (usually less than 1%) in most cannabis strains. Cannabis plants produce cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), the precursor to the three main cannabinoid lines: tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA).

Specific enzymes in the plant break CBGA down and “direct” it toward one of the three lines. The acids are exposed to ultraviolet light or heat, and voila, they become the cannabinoids we know: THC and CBD. In most strains, CBGA is immediately converted to either THCA or CBDA. Thus, more THC means less CBG and CBD (and vice versa) by nature of how these compounds are synthesized.

To obtain higher yields of CBG, breeders are experimenting with genetic manipulation and cross-breeding of plants.

CBG’s potential medical benefits

The human body’s built-in endocannabinoid system works to keep the body in its balanced state of homeostasis. While there are specific details about how cannabinoids work, in general the endocannabinoid system performs different functions specific to each area of the body. For example, at an injury site, the ECS can help regulate immune cells to limit inflammation.

CBG has been found to act on very specific physiological systems and problems, and results for medicinal use are promising:

  • Endocannabinoid receptors are prevalent in eye structures, and interestingly, CBG is thought to be particularly effective in treating glaucoma because it reduces intraocular pressure. It is a powerful vasodilator and has neuroprotective effects to boot.
  • In animal experiments involving mice, CBG was found to be effective in decreasing the inflammation characteristic of inflammatory bowel disease.
  • In a recent 2015 study, CBG was shown to protect neurons in mice with Huntington’s disease, which is characterized by nerve cell degeneration in the brain.
  • CBG is showing great promise as a cancer fighter. Specifically, CBG was shown to block receptors that cause cancer cell growth. In one such study, it was shown to inhibit the growth of colorectal cancer cells in mice, thereby slowing colon cancer growth. CBG inhibited tumors and chemically-induced colon carcinogenesis, therefore demonstrating a very exciting possibility for a cure for colorectal cancer.
  • European research shows evidence that CBG is an effective antibacterial agent, particularly against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) microbial strains resistant to several classes of drugs. Since the 1950s, topical formulations of cannabis have been effective in skin infections, but researchers at the time were unaware of the plant’s chemical composition.
  • In a very recent 2017 study, researchers showed that a form of CBG purified to remove delta-9 THC was a very effective appetite stimulant in rats. This may lead to a novel non-psychotropic therapeutic option for cachexia, the muscle wasting and severe weight loss seen in late stage cancer and other diseases.
  • In a study that looked at the effects of five different cannabinoids on bladder contractions, CBG tested best at inhibiting muscle contractions, so it may be a future tool in preventing bladder dysfunction disorders.

Scientists are excited about these initial CBG results and are promoting future research with CBG alone or CBG in combination with other cannabinoids and therapies for the treatment of multiple maladies. Because it is non-psychotropic, CBG has a promising wide range of potential applications not only for the problems mentioned above, but also as an analgesic, therapy for psoriasis, and as an antidepressant.

White CBG hemp flower contains 12 to 14% CBG with frosty, silver trichomes covering the bright green hemp buds. This CBG-rich hemp strain offers a citrusy and hoppy aroma with hints of chamomile and piney fresh mountain air.

CBG stands for cannabigerolic acid which is the seeds converted into tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), the precursor of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA). Most hemp strains contain only small amounts of CBG, but new CBG-rich hemp strains are now available. Because CBG hemp flower is still a less common variety, it often comes at a higher cost.

CBG is the parent molecule of THC and CBD, which have different molecular structures and different interactions with the endocannabinoid system. Unlike THC, CBD and CBG are non-psychoactive, meaning they won’t get you high. Our CBG hemp flower contains less than 0.3% delta-9-THC.

With initial smells of fresh plant matter, cypress, and a bit of spicy skunk, this strain’s flavors intensify and evolve when broken up, shifting to a bouquet that includes hints of cilantro and gas.

CBG has been found to fight inflammation, pain, nausea and research has shown it works to slow the proliferation of cancer cells as well as significantly reduces intraocular eye pressure caused by glaucoma. CBG shows promise as an antibacterial agent and an anti-inflammatory as well.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the powerful, legal and natural derivative of the hemp and cannabis plant that is taking the world by storm and widely considered a “miracle supplement”. The cannabis plant contains about 85 cannabinoids, the chemical compounds responsible for the way marijuana effects users, with the two most widely discussed being CBD and THC. Cannabinoids play a vital role in the human body which has endocannabinoid receptors located throughout it. These receptors comprise what is known as our endocannabinoid systems and are stimulated (whether by external cannabinoids or the ones already within us), they work to maintain homeostasis.

While tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is what’s responsible for cannabis’ psychoactive properties, cannabidiol (CBD) is non-psychoactive and, based on the current research available and user testimonials, offers an array of therapeutic benefits ranging from cancer prevention and treatment to pain relief.

The Potential Benefits of CBD

Based on currently available research CBD appears to be nothing short of miraculous – a great, natural alternative for pharmaceuticals used to treat a host of diseases. The following factoids were curated from the top cannabidiol studies:

  • CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory and regulator of gastric motility, which makes it a potential therapy for IBS, Crohn’s disease, and colitis.
  • At high doses, CBD activates the 5-ht1A receptor which helps regulate anxiety, addiction, appetite, sleep, pain perception, nausea, and vomiting.
  • CBD is a powerful antioxidant, which makes it a preventative of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and ALS. Its antioxidant properties also make it an age-reduction skin therapy.
  • CBD’s anti-inflammatory quality has been found to alleviate the symptoms of multiple sclerosis. Because of its antioxidant properties, it may also prevent multiple sclerosis and/or prevent the disease from escalating.
  • CBD is a positive allosteric modulator of the mu and delta opioid receptors. This means it enhances the ability of these receptors to receive endogenous enkephalins which can increase quality of life and naturally reduce chronic pain in patients with conditions ranging from fibromyalgia to arthritis to cancer.
  • CBD’s antipsychotic properties make it a viable alternative to pharmaceuticals for schizophrenic patients.
  • CBD activates PPAR-gamma receptors. PPAR-gamma receptors are located on the cell’s nuclei and play a role in lipid uptake, insulin sensitivity, dopamine release and the degradation of beta-amyloid plaque. This is why CBD has been found to have natural value for individuals with diabetes, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer’s disease.
  • CBD has been found to not only effectively treat insomnia, but to create stable sleep patterns and, consequently, long-term relief from sleeplessness.
  • CBD’s interaction with the endocannabinoid system helps to reduce nausea, particularly in chemo patients. Studies show that CBD actively destroys cancer cells, which makes it a potential non-toxic, painless alternative to chemotherapy.
  • CBD also antagonizes GPR55 receptors which are widely distributed in the brain and help to control bone density and blood pressure. When activated, GPR55 promotes cancer cell proliferation. This antagonizing action helps explain the natural value of supplementing with CBD in individuals with cancer, osteoporosis, and high blood pressure.
  • Perhaps one of the most exciting and well-known applications of CBD oil is its potential impact for adults and children with epilepsy. Individuals who were experiencing dozens of seizures daily have found that CBD can dramatically decrease these numbers and find near instant relief from attacks.

What is CBD Isolate?

Hemp CBD isolate is cannabidiol in its purest form possible making it the most powerful form of CBD currently available.
CBD isolate is the extraction of CBD from the cannabis plant so that the subsequent product is pure. Unwanted plant material is removed from the extraction, leaving a concentrated CBD isolate, which amplifies the healing properties of the cannabinoid.

Consuming isolate (as opposed to smoking a high CBD strain of cannabis) yields one higher concentrations of CBD in smaller amounts, making it a great medicine for those who need it.

CBD Products Made from Hemp are 100% Legal

CBD products are produced one of two places, medical cannabis or industrial hemp plants. While still illegal under federal law, cannabis is legal in several states but because it has a low THC content (>.3%), industrial hemp does not fall under these same regulations. This allows consumers to purchase and use CBD as a natural supplement without worrying about any legal repercussions.

Many cannabis users who are solely interested in the medicinal value of marijuana find CBD isolate products to be extremely appealing and effective.
